IK met up with Ebonie Smith to discuss the TASCAM Tape Collection. She's an award-winning music producer, audio engineer and singer-songwriter who earned her first GRAMMY Certificate and RIAA-certified platinum plaque as an assistant engineer on Hamilton (Original Broadway Cast Recording).
She went on to receive her second GRAMMY Certificate as assistant engineer on Sturgill Simpson's award-winning album "A Sailor's Guide to Earth." She also engineered the GRAMMY-nominated album "Dirty Computer" by Janelle Monáe and the GRAMMY-winning album "Invasion to Privacy" by Cardi B.
T-RackS TASCAM PORTA ONE
"The TASCAM PORTA ONE plug-in by IK Multimedia is impressive in a number of ways. It preserves the sound of the original machine in pristine fashion.
If you're not one who is fortunate enough to have a vintage tape machine on deck, this plug-in will work wonders for you!
T-RackS TASCAM 388
The TASCAM 388 by IK Multimedia is a plug-in that I rely on to reintroduce warmth to vocals It also sounds great as a master bus processor. It brings out harmonics that would otherwise be hidden and helps to restore a rich midrange to my tracks.
